Students Suspended For Holding Airsoft Guns In Photo Taken In Living Room

Two Massachusetts high school sweethearts—Tito Velez and Jamie Pereira—are suspended from school after posing with Airsoft toy guns for a photograph at home before attending a homecoming dance last week.

Pereira and Velez are students at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School. The photo was taken by Velez’s father in their living room and then posted to Facebook.

According to NECN.com, Pereira said, “We took [the pictures] with the Airsoft guns because that’s our hobby, and we wanted to include them.” But school officials argue that the photo caused “a disruption at the school.”

School district superintendent Dr. Richard Gross said he didn’t have a problem with the Airsoft guns, and he understands free speech. However, he “takes issue with the caption below the photo that reads ‘Homecoming 2014.'” He added: “When you tie that to a school event, that’s something to be concerned about.”

Velez defended the couple’s photograph on CBS Boston, explaining that the guns are toys that shoot plastic pellets. Yet Dr. Gross said the entire homecoming dance would have been canceled had police discovered the photo prior to the start of the event.

The suspension may last as long as 10 days, although the superintendent says there will be a hearing to consider reducing the punishment.

MY TWO SENSE

After I take photos of family or other functions, I always title it with descriptive words so that years later, when I feel nostalgic, and look at pictures of times gone by, I’ll know when and where the shots were taken.  I don’t see the difference here.  Gross claimed that had the police known about the photo, they would have shut down the dance altogether.  I tend to believe that as Massachusetts is a state in which Islamic terrorists live and torment Americans whenever their paths cross.  That state is like a third-world country, surrounded on all sides, by states of the United States of America.  Massachusetts’ state legislative body leans so far Left it lies on its side, and it continues to rotate.  Here’s a thought, I wonder if Dr. Richard Gross is a racist!?  Hmmmmmmmmmm . . . .

Dear Xxxxxx,

We’re engaged in an urgent fight to change the course of our nation. But there’s something you can do — right now — to help us win.

I believe we’re going to retake the United States Senate, we are going to retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader, and that we will bring back jobs, growth, opportunity, and prosperity to America. But we can’t do it without your help.

Your vote in the November general election is critical. Will you commit to vote — whether it is early or on Election Day, Tuesday, November 4th — so we can take back the U.S. Senate and retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader?

VoteReidOut.jpg

Across the country, many races are neck and neck. A handful of votes — perhaps even your vote — may mean the difference between another do-nothing Senate controlled by Harry Reid or the Republicans taking the Senate and promoting an agenda that will help create a better economy, more liberty, and stronger national security.

Will you commit to vote today?

For Liberty,

Ted Cruz

P.S. It could all come down to you, Judith. Will you commit to vote in the November general election to retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader and take back the U.S. Senate today?

EMAIL LETTER FROM TED CRUZ


A LETTER FROM TED CRUZ

Dear Xxxxxxxxx,

A year ago today, we began an effort to #MakeDCListen. I went to the Senate floor to warn of the tremendous harms Obamacare would cause and urge Congress to do something about it. You went to Facebook, to Twitter, or even to your neighbors to speak the truth.

As a result of that fight, millions of Americans rose up and demanded we stop the disaster that is Obamacare. Together, we elevated the national debate. And now, the misguided healthcare law is more unpopular than ever.

Even though that fight was largely about Obamacare, fundamentally, it was about something much more important. It was about giving a voice to the American people — whose concerns have been ignored by DC politicians for far too long.

Xxxxxxxxx, we are just 41 days away from another terrific opportunity to #MakeDCListen: the election where we take back the United States Senate and retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader.

Together, we can and will do it. Are you in? Can we count on your support with a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250, or more right now so we have the resources we need to take back the Senate?

For Liberty,

Ted Cruz

P.S. One year ago I was proud to stand on the Senate floor and help provide a voice for millions of Americans. Let’s ensure that this November, Washington, DC, hears us all again. Please help us take back the Senate and retire Majority Leader Harry Reid with a contribution right now.

UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY

END OF MONTH REPORT AS OF 08/31/2014

 

 CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM MARCH

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

“When your children and grandchildren ask you what happened to America make sure you can say ‘I tried my best to stop it’.”

“An excuse is an explanation of failure.”

“Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.”

________________________________________

MARCH ON WASHINGTON D.C.:  NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER. 

This is our last appeal.  Anyone and everyone who will be attending and has not informed us – we need to know now.  The March has changed.  There will no longer be a specified route for the Cross Country March.

We will hold the specified route concept in abeyance until next year when it will be reevaluated. For a variety of reasons we are cancelling the specified route for the March and each person will be responsible for getting to the Muster Point in their own way. You may construct your own March, you may fly in to D.C., take your RV or develop any scenario you so desire to reach the Muster Point to meet on September 17, 2014 (Constitution Day).

NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER. 

The Muster Point this year will be the Springfield Mall in Springfield, VA. We will meet from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. at the Muster Point. We will then travel from there by METRO to the Capitol. The Springfield Mall is very close to the intersection of I-95 and I-495. The Springfield Mall is bounded on the North by Franconia Road E., on the East by Frontier Road, on the South by Spring Mall Rd., and on the West by Loisdale Road. We will meet on the South section of the mall on Spring Mall Rd. about halfway between Loisdale Road and Frontier Road. From the Southeast corner of the Springfield Mall it is only about ¼ mile to the METRO Franconia-Springfield Station from where we will take the BLUE Line getting off at the METRO L’Enfant  Station and walking four blocks to the meeting point. It is almost impossible to park in D.C. on a weekday and even if you can find a place it will cost you $50 to $60 to park whereas the METRO station parking is $4.75. The total cost to park and ride the METRO round trip will be about $15.

There are no public restrooms (except for emergencies) on the METRO trains or in the METRO stations. When we get to the meeting point there will be restrooms available. You have been warned! Take precautions as necessary. There is a restaurant near the Comfort Inn off Loisdale Road that serves breakfast and has restrooms. There is also a restaurant just off Franconia Road E. in the Springfield Mall.

The METRO ride to the Capitol takes about 30 minutes. We will meet on the lawn between the Capitol and the Washington Monument and directly across from the Air and Space Museum on that side of the lawn.

There are hotels/motels on Loisdale Road near the Northwest portion of the Springfield Mall. They are the Hilton Hotel, Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn and the Courtyard Marriott. The Marriott is slightly farther than the others and is near the intersection of Loisdale Road and Franconia Road W. Those of you who fly in to Reagan Airport and do not wish to rent a car may get on the Blue Line at Reagan Airport and go to the Franconia-Springfield Station and walk to one of the hotels/motels mentioned above. The walk is about ½ mile. Reservations suggested.

Dress and act like the fine patriotic people you are. If you wish to wear military apparel that is fine. If you are active duty military get permission from your commander before wearing any active duty military apparel.

NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER. 

We are planning on making this an annual event. Be thinking of how we can get some publicity, local news coverage, TV, or whatever. Anyone may participate in this march and they do not have to be enlisted with us. We will leave the Capitol at approximately 6:00 P.M. and return to the Muster Point. At approximately 7:00 P.M. we will meet for dinner at a location near the Muster Point to be announced on September 17.

We need people to be at the Muster Point so we can go to Washington D.C. and make our complaints clear.  Did you read the five quotes at the top of this report? If not, read them again. This is the time. We especially need the people from VA, MD, DE, WV, TN, NC and other nearby states to come help us on September 17. Bring any like-minded people you know with you – the more people we have the more government areas we can cover. We need to cover the Congress, Supreme Court, the IRS and as many Executive Branch offices as we can. There is no need to go to the White House since it will not do any good.

Respond to presidentialdiary@gmail.com if you are planning to attend.

We need patriots in Washington, D.C. on September 17.

If you absolutely cannot come, we need you to pass out flyers in your local area on September 17. If you cannot pass them out on September 17 pass them out as closely as you possibly can to September 17. The best place to pass them out is at your nearest military installation – we need to remind our military of their oath. If you cannot get to a military installation pass them out at your local federal government offices. IRS offices or any federal court is good. Find a federal government agency near you and pass them out. As a last resort go to your local Post Office and pass them out. Before you go to any of these federal government entities make sure you do some reconnaissance and find out what the rules are. We want to do all of this in a perfectly legal manner and we want to pass these flyers out all over the nation.

Some of you are disappointed because we are only passing out flyers. This is what we can do at this time. If it helps you to visualize this look at the flyer as your weapon, look at the words on the flyer as your ammunition, and look at the work in D.C. as maneuvers and reconnaissance.

The flyers are extremely important to what we are attempting to accomplish. The first step is to make crystal clear what your complaint consists of in the shortest possible way. Anything over one page is too long and no one will read it. It must be short and to the point. During Operation American Spring they passed out large packets with volumes of information inside. No one will read that much information unless they are being paid to do so. We want a short printed record of our position that cannot be misunderstood.

Let us know as soon as possible if you will be coming to the Muster Point and how many you will be bringing. People do not have to be enlisted to participate.

RECRUITING UPDATE AS OF 8/31/2014:

As many of you know, we are spending our first year only recruiting. We will never stop recruiting of course, but we will have other objectives in addition to recruiting after our first year.  This web site was launched on September 17 (Constitution Day), 2013 and we started recruiting about 5 days later.

TX still leads in total recruits with 10.4% of all recruits. Following TX is CA (8.0%) FL (7.2%) NC (4.2%) GA (3.8%) PA (3.4%) TN (3.3%) NY (3.3%). CA and PA both had a good month.

Based upon state population for states with over two million in population the top eight are:  TN MS AL NV SC NC OK KY. OK and KY both had a good showing in August. States with under two million in population are led by WY, NH, ME, ID and NE.

This paragraph is not statistically accurate and is an approximation since some of our enlistees do not give us complete information. Our female enlistees are staying at about 4 out of every 10. About 45% of all enlistees (including some female) have military experience. We have every military grade from E-1 to E-9, W1 to W4, and O-1 to O-7. We have military with Silver Stars, Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts. We have military with all types of training and awards. Of all enlistees about 65% are in the age category 40-60. About 20% are over 60 and about 15% are under 40. Our over 60 people increased in August. We had several people enlist in August who were born in the 40s and early 50s with military experience – these are almost all Vietnam veterans. This is why we increased our over 60 percentage from 15% to 20%. We also had some younger people enlist in August and that is encouraging.

Recruiting in Nov. 2013 exceeded Oct. 2013 by 24%. Recruiting in Dec. 2013 exceeded Nov. 2013 by 43%. Recruiting in Jan. 2014 exceeded Dec. 2013 by 97%. January enlistees reached 95% of all the previous months combined. Jan. 2014 was a huge month. In February, due to various technical problems, we were only able to recruit for 18 of the 28 days. It is therefore unfair to compare February to any other month. Still, in February and despite all the setbacks, we exceeded our recruiting totals for every other previous month except January 2014 – those results were extremely encouraging. March 2014 was our seventh largest recruiting month. April 2014 was our third largest recruiting month. May 2014 was our sixth largest recruiting month. June 2014 was our fourth largest recruiting month almost reaching April 2014. We are extremely encouraged by the May and June results since often in late May and early June people will not participate due to graduations, vacations and weddings. July 2014 was our largest recruiting month topping January 2014 by 20%. July 3, 4, 5 were our 4th, 5th, and 3rd largest recruiting days ever as the patriotic spirit was kindled by Independence Day. August, in spite of several minor technical problems that hampered us parts of the entire month, was our fifth largest recruiting month just missing June.

During the first five full months after September 2013 we had already surpassed our recruiting goal for the entire first year. Thank you to each one of you for your courage and patriotism. We do not give out strength reports but we can tell everyone that our total strength is >1,000 and <10,000.

We are now in all 50 states, and 11 other countries. We also have enlistees in Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Most of the people enlisted in other countries are Americans living outside the United States. We are like Washington’s Continental Army, however, in the sense that we will welcome help from anyone who is a patriot and wants to see our Constitution restored.

What is the most encouraging are the many people who have enlisted from small towns in America. This is a small town revolution – the people who have not been heard are beginning to speak up. While we have enlistees in many major cities, it is the voices in small town America that ring loudest. The Founder has been in all 50 states and has never heard of many of these cities so we have been looking them up on the Internet – impressive. Find the people in your small town who are fed up and get them enlisted and then form a unit in your town.

As a change of pace this month (and to see if you are paying attention) we have listed below the cities in each state that have the most people enlisted. Many of these are as expected but you will also find some surprises in the list.

Wasilla AK              Huntsville AL         Hot Springs AR         Phoenix AZ

San Diego CA         Denver CO             New Haven CT         Frankford DE

Jacksonville FL       Atlanta GA             Honolulu HI              Des Moines IA

Meridian ID            Chicago IL              Indianapolis IN        Wichita KS

Louisville KY           Shreveport LA       Boston MA               Baltimore MD

Portland ME           Lansing MI             St. Paul MN              St. Louis MO

Laurel MS               Butte MT                Raleigh NC               Richardton ND

Omaha NE             Concord NH           Toms River NJ          Albuquerque NM

Las Vegas NV         Rochester NY         Toledo OH                Tulsa OK

Portland OR           Philadelphia PA     Wakefield RI             Anderson SC

Rapid City SD         Nashville TN           San Antonio TX        Salt Lake City UT

Virginia Beach VA Plainfield VT           Spokane WA            Milwaukee WI

Princeton WV        Greybull WY

Notes: In the event of a tie we awarded it to the city with the smallest population. New York City, NY would have been the largest in NY except many people signed up by borough and we didn’t add all the boroughs together as one group.

————————————————————————

CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS:

The United States Freedom Army is concerned about continuous constitutional violations in the five areas listed in the attached flyer. These violations are listed in their relative order of importance and are so long running and egregious they can no longer be condoned. The flyer attached to this report delineates these grievances. You may use it to make copies and pass it out at any meetings, at the VFW Hall, post it on billboards, give it to friends, or whatever you may decide.

NOTE: On September 17 we will be passing out these flyers in Washington, D.C. We need as many people there as possible so we can reach as many people as possible in the three branches of our federal government. We need to know as soon as possible how many people will be at the Muster Point on September 17. If you cannot participate with us in Washington D.C. we will have other things for you to do in your local area on that day. See the section above “Cross Country March on Washington D.C.” for more updated information.

We realize that the information in the note above will disappoint some people but it is the best we can do at this point in time given all the circumstances. We want to do the best we can to achieve distribution of our flyer and make the feelings of everyone regarding the abuse of the United States Constitution known.

The flyer itself has a camouflage background and a gold stripe but it was designed so it can be copied in either color or black & white. When copied in black & white it loses the camouflage and gold stripe but is still effective and is very inexpensive to copy in black & white. The words are what count and the words are what we wish to communicate.

PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: THE FLYER FOR YOUR USE IS IN THE LINK BELOW

———————————————————————–

NEW POST:

The website post this month will be about the Constitutional Freedom March. We want people who log on to the website to know that an event is taking place and to encourage them to enlist and participate.

——————————————————————————-

CONSTITUTION:

We support all efforts by any organization to “resurrect” the United States Constitution. Whenever we hear about any effort to restore the Constitution we will record it here.

——————————————————————————-

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

We are a group of people who want to see the United States Constitution followed and, by implication, this leviathan federal government dismantled. We intend to follow all laws and proceed peacefully to attempt to achieve this goal. This is the thrust of our effort at this time.

We are not at present a militia but circumstances in the future may alter that situation. What we do or become depends upon what occurs in Washington, D.C. and what occurs in D.C. may alter our goals and approach. Since we cannot see into the future it is not possible to say what may be required as time passes and events unfold.

THIS IS A REAL ARMY! WE ARE TOGETHER! THE CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN ABUSED AND IGNORED FOR TOO LONG! WE WANT ALL THREE BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO START READING IT!

YOU MAY FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU WISH.

UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY

WE SIGN IN BOLD LETTERS

                                       JOHN HANCOCK

MEDIA RESEARCH CENTER by L. BRENT BOZELL, III (Email sent to me)


Media Research Center. America's Media Watchdog

Please take a moment to read this important op-ed by Media Research Center Founder and President L. Brent Bozell, III.

MEDIA CENSOR SOROS CONNECTION TO PERRY INDICTMENT

By L. Brent Bozell, III

On January 27, 1998, then First Lady Hillary Clinton – without a shred of credible evidence – infamously claimed during an NBC Today interview with Matt Lauer that a “vast right-wing conspiracy” had been working to destroy her husband “since the day he announced for president.”

Sixteen years later we have tangible, documented proof that a vast left-wing conspiracy is in fact out to destroy conservative presidential hopeful Gov. Rick Perry, and the liberals who run the establishment media are doing everything possible to cover it up.

(Sign our Tell The Truth 2014 petition and tell the liberal media to speak up about the Soros’ connection in the Perry indictment.)

The alleged wrongdoing by Gov. Perry is a farce and the indictment a brazen political abuse, denounced by conservatives and liberals, Republicans and Democrats alike. Who is behind this outrage?

According to a Media Research Center analysis, from the moment Perry was indicted on two flimsy counts by a Travis County, Texas grand jury on August 15 through the morning of August 20, the Big Three broadcast networks – ABC, CBS, and NBC – have run 24 stories totaling 38 minutes and 34 seconds across their morning and evening broadcasts. In all that coverage, not one single story mentioned that the group responsible for filing the complaint against Perry in June, Texans for Public Justice (TPJ), is part of a “progressive” coalition that has received $500,000 in funding from prolific left-wing billionaire George Soros.

Imagine for a moment that Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley – another presumed presidential hopeful, but a Democrat – was indicted in similarly obvious political ploy, and the group responsible for that indictment had received a half million dollars from those awful Koch brothers. Every single story on ABC, CBS, and NBC would make that connection while the liberal media machine would rain fire and brimstone across the land, claiming an all-out assault by the “extreme Right” on the sanctity of our electoral system. Forests would be slashed to the ground to print the endless string of liberal columns denouncing the evils of conservative money in politics.

(Do NOT let the liberal media get away with this one! Sign the petition and EXPOSE the Soros connection in the Perry indictment.)

I wasn’t in the least bit surprised to learn the Soros machine’s fingerprints were all over this brazen, partisan ploy. It’s what they do. It’s a clear effort to undermine and circumvent the political process and yet the media refuse to divulge his role. Not one reporter, on any program, could find the time to report this as part of the Perry story – never mind this being its own story? This is deliberate censorship.

Any mention of Soros-funded TPJ is almost as difficult to find. Of the Big Three, only ABC named the organization during Monday’s World News broadcast and made no mention of the Soros connection. Switch to cable, and TPJ remains almost entirely anonymous with the exception of the inevitable positive shout-out from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow lauding the group for spurring the bogus two-count indictment.

CNN mentioned the group a handful of times, but never made the Soros connection. On Saturday’s New Day, correspondent Peter Hamby referred to TPJ only as “a left-leaning watchdog group.” The next morning Mary Maloney, on the same program, reported the story saying, “The corruption charges stem from a complaint filed by Texans for Public Justice, a public interest group.” Later that morning on State of the Union, an infographic stated, “”Texans for Public Justice identifies itself as a non-partisan watchdog group.” A second box a moment later clarified, “Some consider Texans for Public Justice to be a left-leaning group.” At no point was TPJ’s benefactor mentioned.

The media’s double standard in covering a story such as this misleads and misinforms the very public it claims to serve. In this case, the media have gone beyond mere bias and are complicit in the Soros machine’s scheme to take down a conservative leader.

As always thank you for your support. Please take a minute and consider signing our Tell The Truth petition urging the liberal media to reveal liberal billionaire George Soros’ role in Perry’s indictment.

Forget Obama’s dribble; you’ll want to read this US Marine veteran’s powerful response to beheading!

Photo credit: AmericanLivewire.com

Photo credit: AmericanLivewire.com

As Obama continues to bounce the ball meaninglessly all over the court, leave it to a US soldier to get a slam dunk!

A Marine Corps veteran sent an unmistakable message this week, via social media, to the “cowardly” Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East:  ”You attack us and there will be no mercy. We will bring the righteous hand of God down upon you and crush you. ”

The powerful post has gone viral and was reportedly written by Nick Powers, identified as a Marine vet who served in Iraq by American Live Wire, in response to the beheading of American journalist James Foley.

“To all you ignorant Islamic extremist f**ks. As I sit here constantly hearing and watching you execute innocent men, women and children in the Middle East I chuckle. Why do I chuckle you may ask? Well let me explain something to you cowardice fools who think you are so tough behind all your propaganda videos. You are scaring a population that doesn’t know how to fight, you’re bullying the weak. You say Islam is the religion of peace,but since when does terrorizing the innocent and beheading men, women and children constitute peace? WTF? But keep in mind, what did Saddam’s troops do when we came rolling into town? They surrendered, twice… So all your empty threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than any of you sick, sadistic bastards could ever imagine or comprehend. In 2012 there was about 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? Let me break it down for you. That means there are literally millions of disgruntled, dysfunctional, pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from their government stabbing them in the backs and having to watch their friends die because you Islamic extremist idiots can’t seem to act like normal human beings and stop terrorism and the violence. It’s one thing to take over an Islamic state, but if my memory serves me correctly, I’m pretty sure we plowed through Fallujah in 4 days. Better yet, it took us about month to control your entire country. At this point, with 13+ years of war under our belts, how long do you think it would take us to do it all over again? I’ll let you draw your own conclusions on that one. Do you really think you stand a chance on US soil? Do you really think it would be smart to poke that bear? Remember, never bite the hand that feeds you. Remember we are armed to the teeth in the US and I can promise you this… the Geneva Conventions will not apply to you. You attack us and there will be no mercy. We will bring the righteous hand of God down upon you and crush you. The ball is in your court now ISIS. We are more than ready to arrange your so called “meeting” with your 72 virgins and send you to your “prophet” Mohamed.”

– Nick Powers

UPDATE: To all who read this and assume this is against all Muslims, I am sorry you are too blind to read, this isn’t against Muslims in general. If you feel otherwise I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself one question, am I an extremist? You say Islam is the religion of peace, since when does terrorizing the innocent (beheading women and children, wtf?) mean peace? This is directed at all extremist, if this offends/makes you angry or think I am racist you are are probably an extremist…

* BPR has not independently verified the origination of the viral post or information on Powers’ military service.

MY TWO SENSE

Nick, you are one of the bravest patriots I’ve had the honor of knowing exists in this troubled nation.  Bless you and yours, and thank you from our hearts for your service and sacrifices.  You have absolutely no need to qualify your statement regarding your intentions and the identities of those you do not include.  We have become a nation of apologists for no good reason, and we’re following this weak president and his hate-filled, administration.  Those people are pushing and striving for a utopian planet of ruling elite and enslaved everyone else.  The “utopia” is for them. 

All of the kowtowing to anything in a sheet, or with a tan, has got to end as does the explaining, “I didn’t mean you,” as they will continue to stand in line, and remain perpetually offended by the way the wind blows.  You are absolutely right, Nick, in everything you said!  Don’t let anyone shut you down!

President Obama on Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday. Republicans and Democrats have said his vacation is ill timed. Credit Steven Senne/Associated Press

WASHINGTON — He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American.

But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over what many saw as a callous indifference to the slaughter he had just condemned.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/22/us/politics/a-terrorist-horror-then-golf-incongruity-fuels-obama-critics.html?_r=14

Presidents learn to wall off their feelings and compartmentalize their lives. They deal in death one moment and seek mental and physical relief the next. To make coldhearted decisions in the best interest of the country and manage the burdens of perhaps the most stressful job on the planet, current and former White House officials said, a president must guard against becoming consumed by the emotions of the situations they confront. And few presidents have been known more for cool, emotional detachment than Mr. Obama.

Video:http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/22/us/politics/a-terrorist-horror-then-golf-incongruity-fuels-obama-critics.html?_r=1

Yet the juxtaposition of his indignant denunciation of terrorists and his outing on the greens this week underscored the unintended consequences of such a remove. If Mr. Obama hoped to show America’s enemies that they cannot hijack his schedule, he also showed many of his friends in America that he disdains the politics of appearance. He long ago stopped worrying about what critics say, according to aides, and after the outcry over Wednesday’s game, he defied the critics by golfing again on Thursday, his eighth outing in 11 days on the island.

It was all the more striking given that Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain canceled his vacation after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria released the video showing Mr. Foley’s death because the accent of the masked killer suggested he came from Britain. Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox News that Mr. Obama would “rather be on the golf course than he would be dealing with the crisis.”

But the criticism went beyond the usual political opponents. Privately, many Democrats shook their heads at what they considered a judgment error. Ezra Klein, editor in chief of the online news site Vox, who is normally sympathetic to Mr. Obama, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday that “golfing today is in bad taste.” The Daily News published a front-page photograph of a grinning president in a golf cart next to a picture of Mr. Foley’s distraught mother and father under the headline, “Prez tees off as Foley’s parents grieve.”

“As a general rule, I think that he’s right that you can’t be held hostage to the news cycle — the man deserves a bit of downtime,” said Jim Manley, a longtime Democratic strategist. “But in this particular instance, I think a lot of Democrats flinched a little bit.”

The video, Mr. Manley added, “was just so shocking that the idea that he was going to immediately run to the golf course was just a little too much for folks; it was tone-deaf.”

Mr. Obama has traditionally resisted what he sees as the empty political gesture of abruptly upending his schedule in reaction to the latest crisis. Aides said the golf game did not reflect the depth of his grief over Mr. Foley, noting that the president had just spoken with his parents that morning. “His concern for the Foleys and Jim was evident to all who saw and heard his statement,” said Jennifer Palmieri, the White House communications director.

Mr. Obama is not the first president to get in trouble with a golf club in hand. On the course one day in 2002, President George W. Bush delivered a tough-worded statement denouncing a suicide bombing in Israel and then, barely missing a beat, told reporters, “Now, watch this drive.” Mr. Bush later concluded that such scenes sent a bad message, and in the fall of 2003, with the Iraq war raging, he gave up golf for the remainder of his presidency.

What really matters, according to Mr. Obama’s defenders, is not what the president does to blow off steam, but what he does to blow up ISIS. Aides to Republican and Democratic presidents have long argued that the commander in chief is on duty no matter where he is, and that even on vacation, he is receiving briefings, making phone calls and issuing orders. Other presidents have taken vacations during major crises and times of war. This year Mr. Obama has repeatedly interrupted his summer break to deal with Iraq and the racial unrest in Ferguson, Mo.

For Mr. Obama, the video of Mr. Foley’s death is acutely personal because it showed one of three other American civilians held hostage, Steven J. Sotloff, suggesting he would be killed next if the president did not stop bombing ISIS targets in Iraq. “The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision,” the masked killer says while holding the back of Mr. Sotloff’s orange, prison-style shirt.

There could hardly be many more wrenching situations for a president. Sending American troops into harm’s way is difficult enough, but they at least volunteered for duty and are trained for the dangers they confront. The rise of social media has made such life-or-death blackmail all the more horrific. As far as aides knew, Mr. Obama did not watch the ISIS video, and advisers did not think he should.

“That’s got to be exquisitely disturbing,” said Peter D. Feaver, a former national security aide to Mr. Bush and President Bill Clinton, who now teaches at Duke University. “And it’s different than for average Americans who are watching this on television but know there’s nothing they can do. With President Obama, there are things he can do, but he’s concluded that he can’t do them.”

Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism expert at Georgetown University, said ISIS appeared to design its video to instill maximum fear in Mr. Obama and a country it perceives as exhausted by war. Mr. Obama’s forceful response on Wednesday, he said, was “a necessary and important one — that we’re not being intimidated, we’re not backing down.”

Including Mr. Sotloff in the video, Mr. Hoffman added, intensified the direct threat the group was sending the president. “They put the knife in, and they’re trying to twist it by making it personal,” he said.

Former presidents have been the subject of personal appeals from terrorists threatening American lives, from the Iran Embassy seizure under Jimmy Carter to the hijackings of T.W.A. Flight 847 and the Achille Lauro cruise ship under Ronald Reagan.

Mr. Obama, too, has faced this situation before. Warren Weinstein, an American development consultant abducted by Al Qaeda in Pakistan, appealed directly to the president in a video late last year. In May, Mr. Obama authorized a prisoner swap with the Taliban to secure the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after concluding that his life was at risk.

Frances Fragos Townsend, a former counterterrorism adviser to Mr. Bush, said it is important to avoid letting the president become too emotionally involved in such situations, adding that she would not have shown the ISIS video to Mr. Obama. “You fight very hard to not have it be personal,” she said. “You just don’t let them do that. They can use your name, and they can make it personal. But it’s not.”

A 90-YEAR-OLD Holocaust survivor was one of at least eight people arrested in downtown St Louis as tensions flared over the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Hedy Epstein was among hundreds of protesters who marched through St Louis against the involvement of the National Guard on the streets of Ferguson. She was arrested for “failure to disperse.”

Ms Epstein, who lives in St Louis, has been a political activist most of her life. She is a vocal campaigner of the Free Gaza Movement and has made five trips to the Gaza strip in the past 10 years.

Ms Epstein helped the Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials having lost all but two of her family at Auschwitz.

“I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety,” Ms Epstein told The Nation. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re 90.”

Mark Gaines holds up his hands as demonstrators autograph a sketch he d(Mother claims Michael Brown was to start college two days from the time he was brought down by Ferguson police for assault, strong-armed robbery of a local Quik Trip store, and attempting to further batter the Ferguson police officer.  Weeks, and months, before what appears to be the justified shooting of Brown, telephone solicitors clogged up phone lines pushing easy-to-get, tax payer funded “loans” to anyone willing to enroll in college.  Not only is this tax payer money offered to anyone regardless of credit rating, the “loans” come without strings, such as guidelines directing how the money is spent.  The agenda behind this federal government being in the money-lending business is to indenture servants under the guise of educating the population.  The loans are sizable and not easy to turn down.  As long as there is something to be gained by it, oppressive governments, such as the Obama Regime, will use every trick in the book to enslave its people.  There isn’t a tastier carrot for the poor than a bribe of thousands of dollars in exchange for college enrollment.  Use the money to buy a car, drugs, alcohol, clothes, or use it to do whatever the heart desires.  No one is watching.  Just Me)

COUNCIL OF CONSERVATIVES CITIZENS by Channel 4 News St. Louis, MO


Hate Crime MurderFour black males murder random white man for the fun of it Imo, MO

If the races had been reversed, this would be a national news story. Instead it is a hush crime and the media calls it “a robbery.”

A white pizza delivery driver was shot and killed while sitting in his car in Imo, MO. This is about three miles from Ferguson. The actual location of the killing is 3.2 miles from where Micheal Brown was shot while attacking a police officer. The suspects are four black males. Nothing of any value was taken. The perpetrators simply wanted to murder a white person for the fun of it.

This is far from being an anomaly. White pizza delivery drivers are often the target of racially motivated black on white attacks. There was another white pizza delivery driver killed in a random racial hate crime in Imo, MO in 2012.

This webmaster knows a man who survived a similar attack by two black males while delivering a pizza in Columbus, Ohio in the 90s. The perps said, “your going to die white boy” before opening fire. He was hit in the arm.

 VIDEO

MY TWO SENSE

Where are the riled up Ferguson, MO citizens?  Their lack of empathy for this dead man proves that Michael Brown’s case is about keeping racial tensions high in favor of blacks rather than defending the righteous.  Obama’s blatant push for black on white hatred is the only transparent operation in this administration.  The narcissism stinking up the White House continues to fuel Obama’s lust for power, and black on white murder isn’t part of that presidential agenda.  It simply doesn’t fit with the plan.  Obama’s own are turning on him, but does he see it?  It doesn’t look like it.  If Hank Johnson can call for demilitarization of local police, it’s just a matter of time before Obama is left standing alone.

VSP launches campaign to donate a trained guide dog to U.S. military veteran

Published: Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014 – 11:43 am

VSP Vision Care, an arm of Rancho Cordova-based VSP Global, on Thursday announced a campaign to help raise, train and place a guide dog with a U.S. military veteran who is blind or has limited vision.

VSP is partnering with America’s VetDogs, a New York-based, nonprofit guide and service dog school that works to meet the needs of veterans with disabilities. There are an estimated 1.5 million veterans whose vision has been impacted by active-duty service.

Through the “Vision to Share” campaign, VSP will donate up to $50,000, which covers the two-year cost of training and placing a guide dog with a military vet. VSP will make a $1 donation every time a person shares the campaign’s video or photos through Facebook, Twitter or e-mail. To participate, go to the “Vision to Share” link at seemuchmore.com.

To date, America’s VetDogs says it has placed more than 300 assistance dogs with veterans with disabilities, at no cost.

BRIETBART BIG GOVERNMENT by CHARLIE SPIERING (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/08/09/Ted-Cruz-ISIS-is-the-Face-Of-Evil)


MY TWO SENSE

Senator Cruz cannot possibly think Obama is naive or inexperienced, causing him to view ISIS as “varsity.” Obama downplays the threat of his pawns in order to perpetuate a belief that he is simply inexperienced or cowardly. Obama pawns, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, ISAS, Hamas, et al, are being used to bring about his “fundamental transformation” of America and liberty wherever it exists in this world. Underestimating Obama, and misreading him, is extremely dangerous. Not accepting that Obama is as evil, or worse than, our greatest threats, is to lose the fight to regain our country. Everything becomes too little-too late. Senator Cruz must pretend that he finds Obama to be a nitwit because his position doesn’t allow a truthful approach-not at this time. If we are to raise grandchildren in a land of exceptionalism, we must place Senator Ted Cruz, and others like him, in political office to lead with integrity and honor. These characteristics are virtually non-existent in the present local and federal governments. No greater proof is needed to support what I say than the White House knee-jerk responses to racial tensions, the unrecognized beheading, and crucifixion, of Christians in the Middle East, the number of entitlements this first family has taken from tax payers, and the ever-increasing welfare roles which are now overwhelmingly burdening our society. Obama knows what he does. STOP HIM!

Ted Cruz: ISIS is the Face of Evil

Sen. Ted Cruz responded to President Obama’s statement on Iraq on Saturday, criticizing him for failing to properly address the threat posed by ISIS.

“Sadly what’s happening in Iraq is the latest manifestation of the failures of the Obama/Clinton foreign policy,” Cruz said, pointing out that since Obama took power, America’s leadership has receded.

Cruz spoke at length about the crisis in Iraq with reporters following his appearance at the Faith Leadership Summit in Iowa.

“What ISIS is doing in Iraq is unspeakable; ISIS is the face of evil,” Cruz said. “ISIS right now is crucifying Christians in Iraq. Crucifixion is not something that just occurred 2000 years ago; they are doing it right now today. ISIS is beheading children who are Christians in Iraq.”

Cruz suggested that the United States acting militarily to thwart the terrorist threat posed by ISIS was a worthy goal, but that Obama should make the case.

“ISIS right now is fighting with U.S. weaponry, with Abrams tanks from America that they seized,” he said.

Cruz reminded that the leaders of ISIS were so extreme they were thrown out of Al Qaeda.

“That says something,” he said. “That’s not easy to do,”

Cruz added that he was glad that President Obama had decided to take the threat of ISIS seriously, pointing out that Obama dismissed them earlier this year as “Junior Varsity.”

“The president’s foreign policy team utterly missed the threat of ISIS, indeed, was working to arm Syrian rebels that were fighting side by side with ISIS.”

America needed to remain vigilant, Cruz said, to avoid a hostage situation, or a situation where Americans in Iraq were put in danger.

Obama’s demands for a political solution in Iraq were naive, Cruz suggested, pointing out that the Sunni and Shite factions in the country were clearly divided. He added that he was concerned that Obama was acting out of political motivation.

“History has taught us that America gets in trouble in military engagements when we get involved on the whims of politicians, without a clearly defined objective.” Cruz said.

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) – Following this morning’s release of the name of the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson answered questions from the press.

Johnson said Highway Patrol is not involved in the shooting investigation, and is only tasked by Gov. Jay Nixon with security.

“He wants to make sure that people in Ferguson are safe and have the right to speak their mind, and that’s what we’re tasked to do,” Johnson said.

Johnson said he would have liked Ferguson police to consult with him before releasing the name of the officer this morning. Johnson saw it on news. He said that the release of the name was requested by the community.

Johnson also said that no tear gas was used against protestors in Ferguson on Thursday, and that “last night was a great night.”

TIMELINE: The Death of Michael Brown and Unrest in Ferguson

“In our anger, we have to make sure that we don’t burn down our own house,” Johnson said.

“This is not a black and white issue,” he said. “We all have sons and daughters. We all have to communicate better.”

TOWNHALL.COM: ROBIN WILLIAMS-COMEDY AND TRAGEDY by CAL THOMAS


Cal  Thomas

Robin Williams made me cry. Like his mentor, the late Jonathan Winters, Williams, who committed suicide Monday, made me laugh so intensely tears would come to my eyes.

Williams’ death made headlines and led TV newscasts. His comedic genius diverted us from stories about terrorism and other sadness in the world. That’s what comedy does. It makes us forget our troubles — national, international and personal — and for a moment, embrace happiness.

Williams, who seemed full of joy on the outside, was apparently tormented on the inside. He suffered from clinical depression. An estimated 19 million Americans suffer from depression, according to the Mayo Clinicwebsite(sic). He may have tried to conquer it in the ’70s and ’80s by self-medicating with cocaine, but the drug, while creating an intense high, is often followed quickly by “intense depression,” according to the Foundation for a Drug-Free World.

Many people misunderstand clinical depression. They think because someone has wealth and fame, or circumstances better than others, they should be happy, or at least content.

Robin Williams wasn’t normal. While he made others laugh — and in his serious roles, such as that of Sean Maguire in “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, conveyed profound and timeless virtues — he was deeply troubled. Ironically, his part in this film was that of a psychologist.

President Obama referred to Williams’ numerous and diverse film roles: “Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny … and everything in between. But he was one of a kind.” Indeed.

Rolling Stone magazine reported; “Last month, Williams checked himself into a rehab facility to ‘fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud,’ his rep said at the time.”

I asked Dave Berg, the former co-producer of “The Tonight Show,” for his greatest memory of Williams, who appeared on the show many times with Jay Leno. He sent this email:

“I once brought my two young children to “The Tonight Show” to meet Robin. They had watched the video of ‘Hook’ many times, and were mesmerized by his performance as Peter Pan in the 1991 film. When Robin came out of his dressing room, and saw my 3-year-old son David and my 7-year-old daughter Melissa, he immediately crouched down, so he could be eye level with them. David asked Robin how he was able to fly in the film. Without missing a beat, Robin answered: ‘A little magic and very tight pants.’ Both the kids and the adults laughed, but for different reasons because Robin was playing to both audiences. That’s true comedic genius.”

Psychiatrist Keith Ablow, appearing on Fox News, said “95 percent” of people with clinical depression are treatable. Whether Robin Williams was among the 5 percent who aren’t, or there were other factors, we may never know.

In one of his most profound roles, that of poetry teacher John Keating in the 1989 film “Dead Poets Society,” Williams told his students: “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”

It’s sad to see someone who could make so many people laugh suffer from depression. Worse, his death and the loss of his talent add to the general gloominess that hangs over much of the world.

MY TWO SENSE:

Although Robin Williams may not have been burdened by the high costs of mental health professionals, most people are, and a combination of other variables, which effect all with Major Depression, put Williams in such a dark space that he determined death was the answer to his suffering.  (Mental illness, once thought to be a matter of feeling sorry for oneself, believe it or not, remains the number one belief to this day.) 
Social stigma, along with the high costs of medical insurance for mental health issues, play co-conspirators in suicide deaths of the clinically depressed.  Not only do insurance companies recognize that mental illness is organic and therefore should be covered under the same guidelines as physical illness, they continue to support and further enable the stigmatization of anyone desperate enough to come out of hiding to seek professional help.  The added financial stressors of exorbitant costs, atop the mental health issue that brought the patient forward, punishes rather than helps and sets up yet another barrier to getting well.  The plethora of hoop-jumping insurance companies, and society, sets up for those already in a fragile state, work in conjunction to create a very sad outcome for anyone attempting to cope with clinical or major depression.  Secrecy, self-medicating, lying, deception, and covering up are all part of major depression dynamics and are directly linked to the fear and misunderstanding of mental illness.  Those who suffer depression to such a degree, have already tried to help themselves regain a sense of well-being by the abusive use of alcohol and/or drugs of all kinds.  The moment at which such an individual gives up and has come to believe that ending life is the only way to stop the pain, is the moment of no return.  It is an extremely dark mental space, and one in which the individual recognizes that living is more terrifying than dying.  In death, it is reasoned, there will be no more pain.  However, what the depressed person is not immediately cognizant of is the fact that death not only ends the torment, it ends everything else as well.  When there is no hope, there is nothing left to live for, so believes the individual suffering.  However, this is a dangerous, and in Williams’ case, a fatal error in judgment caused by an imbalance of brain chemicals which control human emotions.  Those who suffer continuous mental anguish, such as Williams, can only survive that state for so long before something breaks.  Truly understanding mental illness, which will ultimately change the social perception of those who suffer, is the greatest gift society can bring to humanity

TWITCHY TWEETS REGARDING NORTH ST. LOUIS, MO RIOTING by TWITCHY STAFF


MY TWO SENSE:

IS ANYONE SURPRISED BY THIS ATTITUDE??  I’m not, and shame on you if you are!  Petty thugs never change.  They always have a self-image which whines, “I ain’t got no nothin’!  And now dat’s gone!”  What can be expected from a group of spoiled, cry babies who’ve been, for generations, given what is needed to exist, by those who pay taxes, and who have taken (stolen) whatever else they feel entitled to?  A sense of entitlement is most dangerous in the minds of people who have been, for the past ten years, taught that they are victims of a white society and who are taught that by a progressive elite who have no idea what life is like as a minority black, or white, or what the day-to-day life of working class people are.  This progressive elite, the ruling class, is far removed from the average man, woman, and child of the same race, never mind a different race.  The ruling elite, too, go about their business with the same audacity and sense of entitlement over those they rule.  It’s frightening that ruling elite entitlement, and victim entitlement, equally share culpability of what is happening here in Missouri.  A reasonable person has to think that after all of Obama’s and Holder’s dismissive way of “enforcing” the law, relative to opposite races, things are only going to get worse. 

Take a look at some of the Tweets reflecting the mood here.  The comments are provocative and aimed at inciting more violence.  That, I believe is a crime, but who will meet it head on?  St. Louis local police have been jerked around by this administration to the extent that law enforcement’s hands are tied politically–what a shame that is–the last line of defense between the law breaker and the law abiding citizens are left twisting in the wind while thugs run amok until they run out of energy.

I appeal to all those who know, or who are family to these trouble makers, to step up and help get this rage under control.  Trading one’s humanity for personal gain isn’t worth it in the end.

“We Don’t Understand Real Evil, Organized Evil, Very Well. This is Evil Incarnate.” TOWNHALL.COM by HUGH HEWITT, 8-9-14


“We Don’t Understand Real Evil, Organized Evil, Very Well. This is Evil Incarnate.”

That title is a quote from former Ambassador Ryan Crocker, quoted in Peter Baker’s fine piece in Friday’s New York Times’ on the president’s decision to sort-of, kind-of, maybe strike against ISIS.

Baker’s quote of Crocker, who served as President George W. Bush’s Ambassador to Iraq and President Obama’s Ambassador to Afghanistan, is worth reading in its entirety:

“This is about America’s national security,” said Ryan Crocker, who was ambassador to Iraq under Mr. Bush and to Afghanistan under Mr. Obama. “We don’t understand real evil, organized evil, very well. This is evil incarnate. People like Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” the ISIS leader, “have been in a fight for a decade. They are messianic in their vision, and they are not going to stop.”

This is the chilling reality of the war in which we continue to find ourselves, a reality that the American left –of which the president is the condensed, 100 percent concentrated version– refuses to believe: that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, or Hamas, or any Islamist not named bin Laden is a threat to the United States. The president and his ideological allies especially refuse to consider any facts that are inconsistent with their conclusions, even facts that line up as direct threats to America, because they’d rather live in ignorance and danger than validate in any way W’s view of the world and of the crucial necessity of staying involved in the Islamic world, helping our genuine allies and fighting our genuine enemies there.

That was the terribly difficult “middle ground” that Bush and Vice President Cheney knew the U.S. had to occupy, possessing as they did (and still do) a perspective that understood that we and the rest of the West are not at war with Islam but with a virulent, radicalized and very violent strain of Sunni Islamist extremism, every bit the match of the Khomeinism that gripped Iran in the late 1970s and holds on to it still. This latter terror was not opposed by Jimmy Carter and nearly 40 years later still threatens the West in new and more menacing ways. The Sunni equivalent nested first in Afghanistan, was beaten back there, in western Iraq in the person of Zarqawi, and across the globe until, after the election of President Obama, it was granted a reprieve and regrouped and reorganized, and is growing fast and very strong now in western Iraq and other places around the globe.

The left will want to argue that Bush created ISIS, an absurd but predictable last ditch effort to build a weak wall against the reality that people like Lawrence Wright and Bernard Lewis have been arguing against for more than a decade. Indeed, Baker found the pitch perfect representative of the school of pretend-it-doesn’t-exist to quote for his piece:

“This is a slippery slope if I ever saw one,” said Phyllis Bennis, a scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies, a research organization for peace activists. “Whatever else we may have learned from the president’s ‘dumb war,’ it should be eminently clear that we cannot bomb Islamist extremists into submission or disappearance. Every bomb recruits more supporters.”

This point of view is sadly the dominant one within the White House, and the president’s very minimalist response last night should not confuse people about the crucial fact that he is one with Bennis in worldview. I quoted on my show yesterday but requite here to emphasize its importance, President Obama’s very revealing, very candid assessment of ISIS, made to the New Yorker’s David Remnick in a much overlooked but crucial piece from January:

At the core of Obama’s thinking is that American military involvement cannot be the primary instrument to achieve the new equilibrium that the region so desperately needs. And yet thoughts of a pacific equilibrium are far from anyone’s mind in the real, existing Middle East. In the 2012 campaign, Obama spoke not only of killing Osama bin Laden; he also said that Al Qaeda had been “decimated.” I pointed out that the flag of Al Qaeda is now flying in Falluja, in Iraq, and among various rebel factions in Syria; Al Qaeda has asserted a presence in parts of Africa, too.

“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama said, resorting to an uncharacteristically flip analogy. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

“Let’s just keep in mind, Falluja is a profoundly conservative Sunni city in a country that, independent of anything we do, is deeply divided along sectarian lines. And how we think about terrorism has to be defined and specific enough that it doesn’t lead us to think that any horrible actions that take place around the world that are motivated in part by an extremist Islamic ideology are a direct threat to us or something that we have to wade into.”

He went on, “You have a schism between Sunni and Shia throughout the region that is profound. Some of it is directed or abetted by states who are in contests for power there. You have failed states that are just dysfunctional, and various warlords and thugs and criminals are trying to gain leverage or a foothold so that they can control resources, populations, territory. . . . And failed states, conflict, refugees, displacement—all that stuff has an impact on our long-term security. But how we approach those problems and the resources that we direct toward those problems is not going to be exactly the same as how we think about a transnational network of operatives who want to blow up the World Trade Center. We have to be able to distinguish between these problems analytically, so that we’re not using a pliers where we need a hammer, or we’re not using a battalion when what we should be doing is partnering with the local government to train their police force more effectively, improve their intelligence capacities.”

This point of view cannot be reconciled with the facts on the ground in western Iraq, or Nigeria, or Mali, or Somalia or indeed in Gaza. It must oblige the president o almost double over with the pains of cognitive dissonance when confronted with the rampage and slaughters of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. As Remnick pointed out, this worldview is “the core” of the president’s understanding of the world, the equivalent of Reagan’s view of the Soviet Union as an “evil empire.” It is the Rosetta Stone to understanding everything President Obama has done –and mostly not done– since becoming president in 2009. He departs from it only when the televised pictures he and his advisors see –whether from Libya as Qaddafi marched towards Benghazi with the intention of slaughtering his opponents or of ISIS trapping children on mountains– persuade him that, if only because the poor, emotional American people won’t put up with such picture, he has to pretend to do something.

It isn’t really “appeasement” which at least recognized evil and tried to buy it off, though it issues in policies that look like those that were produced by appeasement. It is rather a child-like anti-intellectualism, an academic’s withdrawal from reality into endless faculty meetings where debates about parking spaces and tenure displace the reality of the world outside of the 90-minute meeting committee process.

Because this worldview is fully in control of the American military, national security and diplomatic powers, we will do nothing about al-Baghdadi for at least two more years when, hopefully, an heir to Reagan arrives to reintroduce American power and influence in the world. American power does not always and everywhere mean military power, but it does include it and it ought to be used, especially when a long standing ally like the Kurds are threatened by barbarians at their gates, and not in a haphazard, half-gesture of concern from the skies. A reflexive horror of “boots on the ground” gripped Carter as it grips Obama, and the president who follows Obama will have to reintroduce the world to the prospect of dealing with American military might.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi understands he is up against a paper mache president right now, and is acting accordingly, as are his arch enemies –the mullahs in Iran– and their half-brothers in Hamas and their generous uncle in Moscow. As do the Chinese. The good news is that there are Abbotts and Harpers about, and especially Netanyahu. They have their counterparts within the GOP and those men and women are finding their voices. Even this pretend-to-be-president president may be obliged to act if the ISIS fanatics go too far and too fast. They lack brakes because they believe God is on their side. What they might do that might wake even this president is pretty horrible to consider but if you have seen what they are doing in Iraq, you must understand they’d gladly do whatever they could to deeply injure America again.

It is an ongoing, never-ending-in-our-lifetimes global conflict and it isn’t going away, no matter how many iPads we produce or where LeBron plays or how Johnny Football does. I like most Americans treasure my diversions from the reality of this awful situation, but presidents don’t get to live a life disconnected from them and deeply connected to fairways and greens.

It is hard to imagine how far ISIS will have spread its evil by the time January 2017 brings a new resolve to the White House. Hopefully the seriousness of this situation adds to the repudiation of the president and his party of go-along yes men and women at the polls in November, and a rebuilding of the Department of Defense can begin in earnest in January 2015.

It didn’t have to be this way. W’s generals and their troops won the war in Iraq. President Obama booted away the peace and the intricate coalition that held it in place when he abruptly pulled a residual American force from Iraq in 2011. This is a sequel to what happened in Vietnam in 1975. This time there are no boat people because there is no ocean and there are no boats. Just slaughter. And this time the enemy isn’t going to stop with conquering their country and incursions into a few local countries.

“This is evil incarnate,” as Ambassador Crocker put it so succinctly and well. Evil incarnate doesn’t fill out brackets, or rest or grow weary. It marches on and sneers at the delusions of its enemies who don’t even know they are the target.

EMAIL FROM USFREEDOMARMY.COM 8-10-14


MISCELLANEOUS:

Twitter users read the Twitter instructions below. We have made a few changes.  We have about 20 email addresses that we are having problems with. If you received this email yours is not one of them. Remember – if you change email addresses you must reenlist under the new email address and inform us of this fact so that we may delete the old email address.  We do not use “Linked In”, “Meetup”, or any other similar vehicle. Even if you ask us to join something we cannot participate at this time. Twitter and Facebook are the only two social media vehicles that we use at present.

 ——————————————————————- 

 RESTORING THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR FLYER:

We have, in our flyer, objected to certain Constitutional violations. It is important that everyone understand that if the Constitution were being properly followed you would not see socialism, communism, fascism, marxism, progressivism, statism, or any of these “isms” being able to make any progress. The United States Constitution restricts centralized political power, the necessary ingredient for these “isms” to prosper. Whether these “isms” are a reaction from the right or the left they all have one basic requirement and that is centralization of power. As such, they are all only two sides of the same coin. To maintain your freedom and neutralize people who want to control you from the central government it is essential that the proper interpretation of the Constitution be adhered to.  If the Constitution is not “resurrected” you will lose your freedom.

 ———————————————————————-   

SEPTEMBER MARCH TO WASHINGTON D.C.:

We need to know as soon as possible how many people will be at the Muster Point on September 17. How you get there is immaterial but we need to give an approximate number of people on the Special Events Form sent to the Capitol Police. As soon as you know that you will be attending please let us know and also indicate how many people you will be bringing with you. It is not necessary that someone be enlisted in order for them to participate but it is helpful if people not enlisted are accompanied by someone who is enlisted.

If you are planning to be with us as part of a larger trip to the D.C. area may we suggest you visit George Washington’s home Mount Vernon. It is quite well done and will give you some great insight into colonial America and will also show clearly why George Washington was the greatest American and earned the title “Father of our Country.” It will also be less crowded at that time of the year. Allow a full day to take in the museums and the grounds. To see the entire area there is some walking involved.

—————————————————————–

ENLISTEES WITH FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS:

We have launched a United States Freedom Army Facebook page. In the future we feel this will be a good recruiting tool for us and will take some of the pressure off our Twitter efforts. You can get on our Facebook page and “Like” us at www.facebook.com/usfreedomarmy. Invite all your friends to “Like” us and join the U.S. Freedom Army. It may take us some time to get this working well so be patient with us. If we do not respond it doesn’t mean we don’t care, it only means we are not quite sure what we are doing yet.

————————————————————————–

ENLISTEES WITH TWITTER ACCOUNTS:

We need you now more than ever. In August Twitter changed its rules on tweeting and we are no longer able to tweet at the same level as we have in the past. This has adversely affected our recruiting and we need support from our enlistees. This is the most important thing you can do to help this Army at this time.

We cannot respond to queries regarding our Army on Twitter. If someone wants to pose a question to the U.S. FREEDOM ARMY ask them to go to the website and use the “Contact Us” button. We simply do not have the time to respond to replies on Twitter and engage in discussions with people (especially liberals) about any matter on our Tweets. If you wish to do so that is your choice. When people make wild statements about our Army and it is obvious they have not read the website refer them to our website.

The United States Freedom Army wants to thank everyone who is helping us on Twitter. Twitter is the current major source for our enlistments. Sometimes in life you are asked to do things without being able to see the results. We see the results here, however, and our recruiting is doing very well. I wish there were some way we could share it with all of you but for the present we feel we need to keep our strength numbers under wraps. We will share the results with everyone as soon as we feel it is appropriate.

Below are the instructions for helping us recruit on Twitter. If you have less than 100 followers no action is required on your part. Remember, this is optional. We will not think any less of anyone that does not wish to participate. We value all enlistees and appreciate your patriotism.

We especially need any enlistees with more than 20,000 followers who wish to work with us to advise us immediately of your desire to help. We really need your participation if you are in a position to help us. We need our Twitter efforts to start reaching new people out there in cyberspace.

We also need creative people to write new tweets for the United States Freedom Army. If you would like to write tweets for us please advise us. We would like you to write about 1-2 new tweets on average per day. There is no minimum number of followers required to write tweets.

At present, we get 80% to 90% of our enlistees from Twitter. We estimate that our current enlistees have a total number of Twitter followers between 800,000 and 1,200,000. If you would each give us two to four minutes a day of your time we could increase our enlistments.

****************************************

If you wish to help us recruit on Twitter here is what we need you to do:

 <100 followers – no action

100-500 followers – 1-2 retweets per day

500-5,000 followers 2-6 retweets per day

5,000 – 15,000 followers 6-10 retweets per day

>15,000 followers 10-40 retweets per day

In your search box at the top enter @usfreedomarmyx (the U.S. Freedom Army Auxiliary) and then click on the title when it appears below. You should get a list of the @usfreedomarmyx TWEETS (Sometimes but not always). If you do not get a list of the TWEETS click on the profile – you will get the last two tweets – go to the bottom of the profile and it will say “Got to full profile” – click on “Go to full profile” and you will get the Tweets. Select any tweets you like and retweet them. Retweet ONLY those tweets that have the name of the website usfreedomarmy.com (or USFREEDOMARMY.COM) contained within the tweet.  Once you become proficient at this it can be done in just a few minutes. Whenever you go on Twitter you can do this first if you wish and it will be over almost immediately.

TRY TO NOT EXCEED THE UPPER LIMITS WE HAVE POSTED ABOVE.

In the setup we have described you may reuse a tweet after you have retweeted it once. If you want to reuse a tweet you like do as follows: A tweet you have retweeted will show as green in the retweet box. Click on retweet and it will turn from green to blue – click on retweet again and the retweet box will appear – then retweet.

Note: We retweet the same tweet over and over if we like it – do not be afraid to use the same tweet many times. On occasion Twitter will not allow you to retweet something – just ignore that tweet if this occurs – it is the nature of Twitter – we don’t understand why either.   

Email us at any time if you have any problems or questions. The more enlistees we have the more we will be able to increase pressure on the government to reform.

If everyone pitches in we can assure you the results will be dramatic.

********************************************

If you wish to write original tweets this is what we need you to do:

Advise us by email that you will be writing tweets and include your twitter name (@xxxxxxxxxx). In order for us to use your tweet it must contain the name of our web site spelled correctly in Twitter format USFREEDOMARMY.COM (or usfreedomarmy.com) and should include the word Enlist (or join). If you can also include U.S. Freedom Army in the tweet that is good but is not required. Pictures are good – they attract people – especially pictures that are large enough to be visible.  One or two a day on average is fine – you do not have to exceed that limit. Be creative – we have people writing for us that have done a great job being creative.

If you are writing original tweets for us you MUST inform us so that we can get those tweets to the correct timelines. You may inform us by replying to this email or by using the “Contact” button on www.usfreedomarmy.com.

********************************************

Please note: If you wish to communicate on Twitter with other enlistees you may use #usfreedomarmy. Those of you who are not using a web site name on your profile are welcome to use usfreedomarmy.com if you wish to do so.

A very special thank you to goes out to @oceanbcake. Without his help and support we would not have achieved the level of enlistments we have today. His efforts to help the U.S. Freedom Army have been exemplary. Please follow him if you are not doing so already.

We cannot thank everyone who is helping us on Twitter but a few people have contributed enormously to our effort and we wanted to thank them for writing tweets and retweeting:

@yankepatriot @proud2b4family @P_A_T_R_I_O_TS @3_patton @KevLeeS @Pookies_8

US FREEDOM ARMY by Lewis Shupe (Copy of email I received)


At the end of each month we issue a month-end report as well as other information from time to time during the month. Below is the June month-end report. This should give you some information on our current activities and future plans. July has been a terrific recruiting month for us and should be the largest recruiting month we have ever achieved. Thank you to all of you for that surge. July 3, 4, 5 were the 4th, 5th and 3rd largest recruiting days we have ever had – the spirit of Independence Day was particularly strong at that time.

——————————————————————

UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY

END OF MONTH REPORT AS OF 06/30/2014

 

 

—————————————————————-

 

“When your children and grandchildren ask you what happened to America make sure you can say ‘I tried my best to stop it’.”

 

“An excuse is an explanation of failure.”

 

“Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.”

 

—————————————————————–

RECRUITING UPDATE AS OF 6/30/2014:

As many of you know, we are spending our first year only recruiting. We will never stop recruiting of course, but we will have other objectives in addition to recruiting after our first year.  This web site was launched on September 17 (Constitution Day), 2013 and we started recruiting about 5 days later.

 

TX still leads in total recruits with 10.1% of all recruits. Following TX is CA (7.8%) FL (7.5%) NC (4.4%) GA (4.0%) OH (3.2%) NY (3.1%) TN (3.0%).

 

Based upon state population for states with over two million in population the top eight are:  MS AL (AL had a strong month of June) SC OR TN NV NC AR. States with under two million in population are led by WY, ME, ID, and NH.

 

This paragraph is not statistically accurate and is an approximation since many of our enlistees do not give us complete information. Demographically our female enlistees are up slightly from last month – about 4 out of every 10. About 40% of all enlistees (including some female) have military experience. We have every military grade from E-1 to E-9, W1 to W4, and O-1 to O-7. We have military with Silver Stars, Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts. We have military with all types of training and awards. Of all enlistees about 70% are in the age category 40-60. About 15% are over 60 and about 15% are under 40. We enlisted some additional active duty military in June. A small percentage of our enlistees are active duty military. We have enlisted some younger people again in June and that continues to encourage us. We must strive to educate the young people so that they understand that their futures are being slowly and systematically eroded by the forces deployed to destroy this great nation.

 

Recruiting in Nov. 2013 exceeded Oct. 2013 by 24%. Recruiting in Dec. 2013 exceeded Nov. 2013 by 43%. Recruiting in Jan. 2014 exceeded Dec. 2013 by 97%. January enlistees reached 95% of all the previous months combined. Jan. 2014 was a huge month. In February, due to various technical problems, we were only able to recruit for 18 of the 28 days. It is therefore unfair to compare February to any other month. Still, in February and despite all the setbacks, we exceeded our recruiting totals for every other previous month except January 2014 – those results were extremely encouraging. March 2014 was our fifth largest recruiting month. April 2014 was our second largest recruiting month, exceeded by only January, 2014. May 2014 was our fourth largest recruiting month. June 2014 was our third largest recruiting month almost reaching April 2014. We are extremely encouraged by the May and June results since often in late May and early June people will not participate due to graduations, vacations and weddings. During the first five full months after September 2013 we had already surpassed our recruiting goal for the entire first year. Thank you to each one of you for your courage and patriotism. We do not give out strength reports but we can tell everyone that our total strength is >1,000 and <10,000.

 

We are now in all 50 states and 11 other countries. Most of the people enlisted in other countries are Americans living outside the United States. We are like Washington’s Continental Army, however, in the sense that we will welcome help from anyone who is a patriot and wants to see our Constitution restored.

 

What is the most encouraging are the many people who have enlisted from small towns in America. This is a small town revolution – the people who have not been heard are beginning to speak up. While we have enlistees in many major cities, it is the voices in small town America that ring loudest. The Founder has been in all 50 states and has never heard of many of these cities so we have been looking them up on the Internet – impressive. Find the people in your small town who are fed up and get them enlisted and then form a unit in your town.

 

Below we have listed one sample town from each of the 50 States in which we have enlistees. Some of these cities have multiple people enlisted. If you have heard of 10 of these towns we will be surprised. If you have been in 10 of these towns we will be doubly surprised. If you can find one person on this planet that has been in all 50 of these towns we will be astounded.

 

This is just a sample. There is at least one person enlisted in each of these cities:

CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS:

 

The United States Freedom Army is concerned about continuous constitutional violations in the five areas listed in the attached flyer. These violations are listed in their relative order of importance and are so long running and egregious they can no longer be condoned. The flyer attached to this report delineates these grievances. You may use it to make copies and pass it out at any meetings, at the VFW Hall, post it on billboards, give it to friends, or whatever you may decide.

 

NOTE: In September we will be passing out these flyers in Washington, D.C. We need as many people there as possible so we can reach as many people as possible in the three branches of our federal government. We need to know as soon as possible how many people will be at the Muster Point on September 17. If you cannot participate with us in Washington D.C. we will have other things for you to do in your local area on that day. See the section below “Cross Country March on Washington D.C.” for more updated information.

 

We realize that the information in the note above will disappoint some people but it is the best we can do at this point in time given all the circumstances. We want to do the best we can to achieve distribution of our flyer and make the feelings of everyone regarding the abuse of the United States Constitution known. 

 

PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: THE FLYER FOR YOUR USE IS IN THE ATTACHMENT.

 

———————————————————————–

 

CROSS COUNTRY MARCH ON WASHINGTON D.C.:

 

The March has changed. There will no longer be a specified route for the Cross Country March. We will hold the specified route concept in abeyance until next year when it will be reevaluated. For a variety of reasons we are cancelling the specified route for the March and each person will be responsible for getting to the Muster Point in their own way. You may construct your own March, you may fly in to D.C., take your RV or develop any scenario you so desire to reach the Muster Point to meet on September 17, 2014 (Constitution Day).

 

The Muster Point this year will be the Springfield Mall in Springfield, VA. We will meet from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. at the Muster Point. We will then travel from there by METRO to the Capitol. The Springfield Mall is very close to the intersection of I-95 and I-495. The Springfield Mall is bounded on the North by Franconia Road E., on the East by Frontier Road, on the South by Spring Mall Rd., and on the West by Loisdale Road. We will meet on the South section of the mall on Spring Mall Rd. about halfway between Loisdale Road and Frontier Road. From the Southeast corner of the Springfield Mall it is only about ¼ mile to the METRO Franconia-Springfield Station from where we will take the BLUE Line getting off at the METRO L’Enfant  Station and walking four blocks to the meeting point. It is almost impossible to park in D.C. on a weekday and even if you can find a place it will cost you $50 to $60 to park whereas the METRO station parking is $4.75. The total cost to park and ride the METRO will be about $15. The METRO ride to the Capitol takes about 30 minutes. The meeting point will be announced at a later date but tentatively we will be on the lawn between the Capitol and the Washington Monument and directly across from the Air and Space Museum on that side of the lawn.

 

There are hotels/motels on Loisdale Road near the Northwest portion of the Springfield Mall. They are the Hilton Hotel, Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn and the Courtyard Marriott. The Marriott is slightly farther than the others and is near the intersection of Loisdale Road and Franconia Road W. Those of you who fly in to Reagan Airport and do not wish to rent a car may get on the Blue Line at Reagan Airport and go to the Franconia-Springfield Station and walk to one of the hotels/motels mentioned above. The walk is about ½ mile. Reservations suggested.

 

We are planning on making this an annual event. Be thinking of how we can get some publicity, local news coverage, TV, or whatever. Anyone may participate in this march and they do not have to be enlisted with us. Any ideas for a name for the march are welcome (currently we have Constitutional Freedom March and Liberty March).

 

We need people to be at the Muster Point so we can go to Washington D.C. and make our complaints clear. Did you read the three quotes at the top of this report? If not, read them again. This is the time. We especially need the people from VA, MD, DE, WV and other surrounding states to come help us on September 17. Bring any like-minded people you know with you – the more people we have the more government areas we can cover. We need to cover the Congress, Supreme Court, the IRS and as many Executive Branch offices as we can. There is no need to go to the White House since it will not do any good.

 

We need patriots in Washington, D.C. on September 17.

 

If you absolutely cannot come, we need you to pass out flyers in your local area on September 17. If you cannot pass them out on September 17 pass them out as closely as you possibly can to September 17. The best place to pass them out is at your nearest military installation – we need to remind our military of their oath. If you cannot get to a military installation pass them out at your local federal government offices. The IRS offices or any federal court is good. Find a federal government agency near you and pass them out. As a last resort go to your local Post Office and pass them out. Before you go to any of these federal government entities make sure you do some reconnaissance and find out what the rules are. We want to do all of this in a perfectly legal manner and we want to pass these flyers out all over the nation.

 

Some of you are disappointed because we are only passing out flyers. This is what we can do at this time. If it helps you to visualize this look at the flyer as your weapon, look at the words on the flyer as your ammunition, and look at the work in D.C. as maneuvers and reconnaissance.

 

The flyers are extremely important to what we are attempting to accomplish. The first step is to make crystal clear what your complaint consists of in the shortest possible way. Anything over one page is too long and no one will read it. It must be short and to the point. During Operation American Spring they passed out large packets with volumes of information inside. No one will read that much information unless they are being paid to do so. We want a short printed record of our position that cannot be misunderstood.

 

We will be giving additional instructions in the next two month-end reports.

 

Let us know as soon as possible if you will be coming to the Muster Point and how many you will be bringing. People do not have to be enlisted to participate.

RADIO INTERVIEW:

 

Lewis Shupe was interviewed by Fred DeRuvo on the Wayne Dupree network WAAR on Wednesday May 28, 2014. The first 35 minutes of this radio show was taken up with this interview. If you are interested in listening to this interview you may use the link below.

NEW POST:

 

The website post this month will be about the Welfare Clause. We covered this in the second post “What did James Madison Say?” but thought we should elaborate on it again in a different manner. It is important that everyone understand how the forces of socialism have “redefined” the Constitution to enable them to circumvent its provisions. This post will give you some more detail on this abusive behavior. It is at present available for your perusal.

 

——————————————————————————-

 

CONSTITUTION:

 

We support all efforts by any organization to “resurrect” the United States Constitution. Whenever we hear about any effort to restore the Constitution we will record it here.

 

——————————————————————————-

 

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

 

We are a group of people who want to see the United States Constitution followed and, by implication, this leviathan federal government dismantled. We intend to follow all laws and proceed peacefully to attempt to achieve this goal. This is the thrust of our effort at this time.

 

We are not at present a militia but circumstances in the future may alter that situation. What we do or become depends upon what occurs in Washington, D.C. and what occurs in D.C. may alter our goals and approach. Since we cannot see into the future it is not possible to say what may be required as time passes and events unfold.

 

———————————————————————————————

 

THIS IS A REAL ARMY! WE ARE TOGETHER! THE CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN ABUSED AND IGNORED FOR TOO LONG! WE WANT ALL THREE BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO START READING IT!

 

 

YOU MAY FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU WISH.

 

UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY

WE SIGN IN BOLD LETTERS

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE IN AMAC AND AARP? MY TWO SENSE: Taken from the AMAC website homepage. And just to get it out of the way—no, I am not receiving anything from AMAC! In fact, I may be breaking some copyright infringement rule! But when I see honesty out there where so much is dishonest, I have to say something. From what I know about AMAC, all of what you see on this post is true.


What’s the difference between AMAC and AARP?

The Constitution …

They think it’s out of date. We think it is the greatest document ever devised by man for the governance of man.

Big Government…

They are for more government. We think there is too much government and wasted spending.

Social Security…

They are scaring older people to get members. AMAC has brought to Congress a solution to keep Social Security Solvent!

ObamaCare…

They pushed for it and stand to gain millions from their insurance sales. We know it will result in rationing and are fighting to repeal it.

Our National Debt…

They are ignoring it. We are pushing to reduce spending, cut departments and getting our fiscal house in order. They are part of the Liberal Media. AMAC publishes a national magazine that prints both sides of an argument in a fair and balanced way. If you want an organization that will speak out for the values you believe in, Join AMAC today!

Special Urgent Appeal to Every American Over 50:

Join today and spread the word. Conservative Americans need to Join Forces by joining Amac. We need to neutralize the effects of liberal power brokers – like the AARP.

More and more Americans are realizing the NEED for an organization like the AARP – but one that represents the Real America and stands for traditional values, fiscal responsibility and true financial security for those who have earned it.

AMAC is now THE leading conservative alternative to the AARP, providing insurance benefits (including Medicare Supplement, Major Medical), travel discounts and A VOICE THAT TRULY SPEAKS FOR YOU. AMAC membership has recently exploded with a ground swell of grassroots support – from 30,000 members to over 900,000 members.

More and more Americans are realizing that the AARP does not represent their values – while AMAC does.

Your fellow Americans are joiningAMAC because the AARP:

  • Does not represent best interest.

  • Misrepresents the needs and wishes of American over 50.

  • Aggressively backed ObamaCare against the wishes of their members. From whom they now stand to take $1 Billion Dollars as a direct result of Medicare cuts AARP supported.

  • Supports aggressive Gun Control.

  • Supports federally-funded Abortion.

  • Supports big government and encourages Federal spending. (They received over $100 million in grants last year.)

  • They either support or are silent on many other issues that seniors oppose.

  • They have very limited choices for insurance benefits. Every policy they sell furthers their agenda.

$1 Billion reward for passage of ObamaCare  VIDEO:Finally, we know why AARP worked so hard to get ObamaCare passed. As reported recently in the New York Times and Washington Post, a Congressional Oversight committee released the findings of a year-long investigation that revealed how AARP stands to make nearly $1 billion over the next 10 years if ObamaCare remains in effect.Watch the video of AARP President, A. Barry Rand being questioned in Congress.This is why we need your help. AMAC is fighting to help mature Americans, not push legislation that profits us. Join the AMAC Army. Together we can make a difference. Tell the AARP, “No More!” In what will be the MOST IMPORTANT election in our nation’s history – we need to neutralize AARP’s power. they were a powerhouse for Obama in the last election. We can’t allow thatto be repeated. We need to let our elected representativesknow AARP doesn’t speak for US.AMAC does.

Everything that was once good about the AARP is now
Better with Amac:

  • True advocacy for seniors. We fight for better public policy that address your needs and your values.

  • Active, involved membership. Grassroots efforts working for legislation to curb government spending and over taxing seniors.

  • Insurance you need – Medicare Supplement, Prescription Drug Coverage, Major Medical, Long-term Care, Home, Auto and more.

  • Travel and other discounts on products important to mature Americans.

Plus, we fight against:

  • Out of control spending in Washington, DC.

  • Record debt we are leaving our kids and grandkids.

  • Government policies that are killing jobs instead of creating them.

  • Liberal agendas that weaken our economic and military strength and limit our freedoms.

If you are over 50, please join us NOW.AMAC Demands an End to the Social Security Double-TaxAMAC – Over 900,000 Strong – is pressuring Congress to draft legislation ending the tax on your Social Security checks. This money is yours. You earned it. You need it. The government has no right to it.If you are senior collecting social security, and your combined income is more than $33,000 ($25,000 single) you are paying a tax on your Social Security income* – A Tax that you ALREADY paid.You were taxed when your money went in – and now you are being taxed AGAIN when YOUR money is returned to you.That doesn’t make any sense. AMAC is telling key House Representatives that it is just plain wrong. And, that they MUST draft legislation to correct it.Join Amac. We will add you to our growing army supporting this legislation. With your help we will get new laws enacted. Better Laws. Better for You. Better for America.Join now. Stay informed. Get the AMAC Magazine.

MY TWO SENSE: WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY? I CAN’T DISPLAY THIS CARTOON?


We Americans are like children.  Tell us we cannot do something, and we will do that something just for spite!  Freedom will not go quietly, obama!  Americans have fought and given their lives for the sake of FREEDOM, and we will do it again, and again, and again.  We will fight tyranny and oppression because we would rather die than put up with the arrogance of despotism.

It may take a long time for America to wake up, and smell the coffee, but once she is awake, she will take back what was usurped while she slept.  Political Correctness will fall to the wayside, and be seen for what it truly is; a major assault on the First Amendment.  Tolerance of the intolerable will fall as well, and DC corruption will meet the ire of pissed off Americans!

JUST ME
